A Word From Our Principal

Dear Parent/Guardian & Students:

Welcome to James Guinn Elementary School, home of the Soaring Eagles! We are all excited to have you join the Guinn family.

My name is Dr. Carlos F. Perez and it is with great pride and excitement that I am your principal. I am elated to bring my skills as an educational leader to James Guinn and to work with you as a partner in your child’s education to ensure their academic success. Along with the staff, we will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at James Guinn by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners.

This year, we will focus on the following initiatives:

  • Social and Emotional Learning (SEL)
  • Academic Discourse Strategies – ACE’ing
  • Providing exciting and challenging E2-STEAM-D enrichment activities
  • The Writing Process
  • 21st Century skills
  • Fostering a nurturing safe environment
  • Use of data to inform instruction

We anticipate another successful year as we support the academic, social, and emotional growth of your child here at James Guinn Elementary School. During the course of the year, it is my hope that we will work together to provide the students of James Guinn the best possible opportunities in preparing them to be world class citizens ready to master the challenges of the 21st Century with a solid foundation created here at our school. As principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input.

Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the BEST school in America! I look forward to working with you and your child.  

Go Eagles!
